I’m surprised people haven’t reported experience this. It has happened for quite a long time over several versions of iOS. I find it incredibly bothersome. Yes it doesn’t harm anything and if I was a very slow user I probably wouldn’t encounter it. But it bites me often. And I really hate this bug.
If this is an intended behavior then I really wish it was optional. Maybe there’s some reason people liking it jumping to the top left element on your screen. But I would choose to disable that feature.
